Laser-induced damage of dielectric-enhanced mirrors at 1064 nm
SPECIAL EVENT - This talk will be on MONDAY 3/4 at 4:30 pm at the Institute of Optics!
Jue Wang PhD, SPIE Fellow with Corning Advanced Optics - Corning Research and Development Corporation
Diamond-turned aluminum alloy is extensively used in infrared (IR) optical systems. Dielectric-enhanced mirrors improve laser damage resistance. We will discuss laser-induced damage of the dielectric-enhanced mirrors at 1064 nm and 20 ns. We will share how we (i) analyze the damage sites using a combination of optical microscopy, atomic force microscopy, scanning electron-microscopy, and laser scanning confocal microscopy; (ii) explain laser-induced damage morphology by using 3D finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) simulation; and (iii) predict optical performance based on coating modeling. Finally, we will explore surface mitigation techniques that lead to high laser durability.
